  • Our asset storage, screening, processing and delivery capabilities have been upgraded with several new core features which we will expand further upon over the next few months. Note that these services are only available on request for the time being:
    • Transcoding of broadcast-quality hi-res assets to selected target formats such as ProRes and MXF
    • Delivery to external Aspera server destinations
    • Improved display of frame-accurate timecode and real-time centisecond timecode
  • Various smaller tweaks for Red Arrow Studios International, such as a fully refreshed and dynamically manageable contact page, have been released.
  • A custom hi-res asset import workflow was launched for Motion Content Group, allowing for the ingest and immediate long-term archival of successive batches of assets. Also, a similar process using a dedicated watchfolder storage bucket was set up to deal with the ongoing ingress of new assets.

  • Our bread-and-butter marketing tool product recommendations has been expanded with a handy product selector directly within the message preparation form, allowing you to easily remove or add products on the go, and thereby foregoing the necessity of precompiling a definite list of products to recommend. Furthermore, videos can now be filtered by language in the dialog as well.
  • Under the hood, the way the system handles preview images for e.g. products and assets has been greatly enhanced so as to facilitate future segmentation of assets into artifacts for storage, delivery and transcoding.
  • Our VOD infrastructure has received another optimization, so as to consolidate our video processing tooling in different regions and optimize fast and reliable delivery of streaming video.

  • Our video player now offers frame-accurate playback, including a broadcast-style timecode, as an optional add-on – especially useful in case you are managing broadcast-quality video assets and/or need to address QC workflows with your MediaStore site.
  • Our recommendations have received a substantial usability upgrade: The wait time between sending a screening link and receiving it is now a few seconds only, compared to the roughly three minutes previously necessary for reasons related to users sessions and custom access.

  • Our Screening Rooms, an optional tool to showcase videos to clients in a bare-bones screening setting within our standard white-label client site, has received a considerable interface and usability upgrade.
  • We have split our asset ingest workflow into an ingest step and a transcoding step, allowing you to use (e.g. deliver) and asset shortly after upload, even while the platform preview (such as the multi-bitrate streaming proxy) is still being generated.
  • Under the hood, we ran a comprehensive database migration to ensure better performance and flexibility for the future.
